The fifth season of “Nashville” recently concluded on Aug. 10 but before it finally ended, ABC renewed the television show for its sixth chapter. In fact, the network has already dropped a new trailer for “Nashville” Season 6 and it is set to have 16 episodes. With the unexpected twists and turn of events in the previous season finale, fans are now wondering how the favorite characters’ intertwined lives will continue.

Juliette’s redemption

In the previous season’s final episode, fans saw Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere) admitting to the world that she stole Maddie Conrad’s (Lennon Stella) own song.

Although this got her kicked out from the American Music Awards, her confession helped her to redeem herself.

Juliette even helped Highway 65 get saved after Zach Welles (Cameron Scoggins) threatened to close it. However, Deacon Claybourne (Charles Esten) came to the rescue and offered Zach collaboration on the record label.

A lot of fans have been worried that Highway 65 will come crashing down. But in an interview with Deadline, executive producer Marshall Herskovitz revealed that the crisis is now prevented, although only for the moment.

Scarlett and Gunnar’s separate ways

Aside from Juliette’s redemption, fans also saw Scarlett O'Connor (Clare Bowen) and Gunnar Scott’s (Sam Palladio) split.

In fact, Marshall Herskovitz revealed that there is no way that they could be together again as “Nashville” Season 6 will be about them living their own lives.

The executive producer explained that it will be very interesting to see the narrative of two people who have been so attached to each other, living on their own. To recall, Gunnar ended his relationship with Scarlett as he wanted to have time for himself.

Deacon Claybourne (Charles Esten) also had an intimate moment with Jessie Caine (Kaitlin Doubleday) in the previous season finale.

However, he believed that he still needs more time to move on from Rayna James (Connie Britton) before he jumps into a new relationship.

New characters and shaping career paths

Meanwhile, Marshall Herskovitz also teased that there will be two new characters coming to “Nashville” season 6.

"We will introduce two important new characters that we are excited about," he told Deadline.

Fans will also see the television show’s music stars shaping up their careers, especially Will Lexington (Chris Carmack), Avery Barkley (Jonathan Jackson), Gunnar, and Scarlett. “[They] will make very interesting career turns," Marshall Herskovitz teased.
